Volkswagen will follow Tesla, BMW and other automakers in exporting electric vehicles from China to Europe, citing limited production capacity in its home market.

VW's sporty Spanish brand Cupra will produce its first full-electric SUV, the Tavascan, at one of its joint ventures’ factories in Anhui, VW said. "The Anhui factory was the plant with the right capacity and technology at the time of production planning," VW said said in a statement Friday, adding it has no plans to produce other vehicles in China for export.

The Tavascan is expected to use many of the same underpinnings of the VW ID4 compact full-electric SUV, but with a sportier orientation. The production Tavascan is expected to closely match the specifications of the concept, which used two electric motors for a total output of 306 hp. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kph (62 mph) is less than 6.5 seconds, and range from a 77 kilowatt-hour battery pack is 450 km (280 miles)
